Saturday Morning

November 10th, 2018 at 03:45 pm

I did an out-of-town mystery shop yesterday that turned out to be not such a good idea. The gas and tolls pretty much ate up the fee. And I also ended up buying lunch at Culver's because I was gone so long.

So, I filled the tank for $23, and the lunch was $6. Variables are now at 48%, with 2 1/2 weeks to go.

Part of the mystery shop was reimbursement for a small purchase. I bought something that I will try to sell on eBay. There was nothing I needed for myself.

My bonus from HSBC appeared on my account, so I redeemed the points for $150 in Amazon gift cards. This is in addition to the $150 in Amazon gift cards I got from Wells Fargo. Christmas should be stress-free this year! Plus the November birthdays (3) which are all taken care of now.

It has turned very cold today -- wind chill in the single digits -- so I'm planning to just stay in all day, unless GS1 asks me to take him to a movie.

    Today I drove 25 miles to next town because gas was 5 cents cheaper. Decided to stop for lunch $10. I stopped at a Goodwill in this town. Bought 5 books. When I got home I realized I had already read them so I took them back for refund. $3.95 back in my pocket

    Don't you track the mileage of the ships you complete for your taxes? My accountant always wants to know how much I drove.

    I haven't done taxes since I started mystery shopping. It wouldn't be a bad idea to track mileage, and I think I can catch up using Google maps timeline. But it's been years since I did anything except the simple tax form -- I don't come out better by itemizing. That poor, I guess!

    Sorry the mystery shop was a bust. Grrr!

    It was cold and windy downstate and they are calling for a chance of snow Sunday night into Monday morning. It's more like January than November.
